We were fans of Execuitve Chef Perret at ICI Urban Bistro, Sofitel, DC. Since moving to Montreal last year, he has updated the menu, with fresh, local ingredients, and just built a romantic small garden on the larger, very popular Terrace for outdoor dining. Breakfast is outstanding (typical of Sofitel), at about $20 for a full American, with great pastries and coffee. Dinner dishes are properly prepared and plated with some pleasant choices ( pork belly; rabbit, lobster), and very tasty. The chef, sous chef and staff aim to please; and are spot on regarding special requests. Beyond the excellent cusine, the restaurant is comfortable, with a low- noice level, and large chairs and tables. In short we look forward to returning each time we are in Montreal.

I have dined at the Renoir quite a few times in the past few months and my experience has been consistently good. Located in the lobby of the Sofitel Montreal, the Renoir has a bar section as well as the restaurant proper. In the summer, there is also a terrasse facing Sherbrooke street (but is set back far enough from the street such that you are not taking in car fumes and can actually have a decent conversation).

Tables are set relatively far apart to allow for good conversation during the meal. Service is attentive but not overbearing. Sometimes, the music get a bit loud (especially during the 5 a 7) but the staff usually pick up on this and turn it down a notch.

The menu offers a good variety of choices but like many higher-end restaurants, places a limit on the choices available (about 8 or so main courses and 6 or 7 appetizers). The menu does offer a good table d'hote option which includes an amuse bouche, choice of appetizer, a choice of main course, a choice of dessert and a coffee/tea for $58 (excluding taxes). The ingredients used in these menus are fresh and of good quality (includes items such as lobster, snow crab, scallops, rabbit, etc.). Where possible, menu items are sourced from Quebec.

Dessert is offered in the form of a daily selection of French pastries...everything that I have tried so far has been excellent.

Overall taste leans towards the lighter side and avoids heavy sauces.

Wine list is good and prices are reasonable, for a restaurant at a higher-end hotel.

I have been pleasantly surprised by the Renoir and sometimes forget that it is a hotel restaurant.

this is a great place for lunch, especially in the summer where there is a patio and you can enjoy the lovely weather of Montreal during July. The luncheon menu has many options including a fixed price for about $32 which is quite generous and you will not have to eat dinner, except for maybe some poutine. The wine list is excellent, the ambiance perfect for a decadent and relaxing lunch. I love this place and go often as I work just up the hill.

Le Renoir, on the ground floor of the Sofitel Hotel - Sherbrooke and Peel - in downtown Montréal is an elegant, quiet spot for a wonderful breakfast or brunch. The table arrangement is great - lots of room - perfect for quiet conversation. Large floor-to-ceiling windows offer a great view of Sherbrooke Street and bring in lots of natural light. Service and menu are excellent and Le Renoir is my favourite place for an elegant brunch. We come here to celebrate special family occasions and the place is great for an important business breakfast, brunch or lunch where you need a bit of privacy and a quiet atmosphere to talk. I haven't gone there for dinner but I am sure it is great as well.

I arrived at the Sofitel after a long day flying from the West Coast and after checking in, found that the restaurant closed in a half hour. Rather than go to the restaurant, I ordered their Table d'hote or set menu for room service.

With choices for soup, appetizer, main dish as well as dessert, it was an excellent meal - especially given that the kitchen was probably almost closed down. I asked for "something light" for dessert rather than what was listed and was accommodated.

I was in Montreal only for two nights on business but on my next trip, I shall definitely have to dine in the restaurant itself.
